Old denim jackets with a customized back panel are my favorites. In the ’60’s and ’70’s a lot of bikers and hippies started to make this trend because they wanted to express themselves or they wanted to show their membership from a club. But also commercial companies did this personalisation on the back of jackets as workwear garments for their employees. This particular Lee Jeans Rider jacket from the ’70’s is in my private collection for a while and it has a nice chain stitched back. The jacket is made from a left hand fabric which feels very soft because it’s washed a lot during the years by the pre-owner(s). Check out this ‘Blue Ridge Pool Service’ jacket.
